Big news for Walt Disney World guests who are planning on using Disney’s Magical Express during their next trip! We have just received confirmation from Disney that starting tomorrow (November 17, 2017) Disney’s Magical Express will begin picking up guests (for their transfers back to the Orlando Airport) from the Disney resorts 4 hours before their flight is scheduled to depart. This applies to both domestic and international flights.
Disney’s Magical Express currently picks up guests with domestic flights 3 hours prior to their scheduled flight time and 4 hours for international departures.
Disney has stated that currently this is a permanent change but it could be re-evaluated after the holidays and once construction is completed at the Orlando Airport.
Disney is reporting that the need to deliver guests earlier to the Orlando airport is due to longer wait times for the new, stronger screening procedures for carry-on items by the Transportation Security Administration (TSA). The new procedure (implemented across the country) requires travelers to place all electronics larger than a cell phone in bins for X-ray screening in standard lanes. The new security measures do not apply to passengers enrolled in TSA Pre✓® who are using TSA Pre✓® lanes.
